Now that restictions are being lowered, we are finally able to get out to breathe some fresh air, stretch some limbs and meet up with our friends. While it’s great to hang out in malls and chill at hispter cafes, it might be nice to try something new since we have been cooped up at home for so long. Here are some fun activities that you can do with your friends over the weekend! Although we are free to go out and about, do remember to adhere to SOPs, maintain social distancing and practice personal hygiene.
1) Zip Line @ Shah Alam
Did you know that the Shah Alam Zip Line is the first public zip line in Malaysia? Located at Section 14, the zip line is 240 metres long giving you a bird’s eye view of the surrounding scenery. Tickets are priced at RM20 if you are a Shah Alam resident including students aged 17 and below, RM25 if you are not, RM10 for children and RM40 for foreigners. It is a great experience if you have never tried it before. The rush of adrenaline would really get you pumping and distract you from all the gloom we’ve been experiencing.
Address: Persiaran Tasik, Seksyen 14, 40000 Shah Alam, Selangor
Opening hours: 10am to 6.30pm (Monday to Friday) and 8.30am to 6.30pm (weekends)
Loooking for some activity on water? Head over to Putrajaya Lake, a 650 hectares man-made lake for some kayaking fun. You can rent a kayak for RM10.60 per hour and paddle to your heart’s content. There are also double kayaks and Canadian canoes (fits three people!) for those who are afraid to be on their own for RM15.90 an hour. It’s a fun activity to do with a group of friends and makes for an unforgettable memory. Snap some pictures and enjoy the view while you’re at it!
p.s. Call to book your kayak as the kayaks are limited!

The price ranges from RM60 to RM100 and there are also promotion packages to choose from if you go with a group of friends.
